Get To Know The Northern Thai Hill Tribes – Chiang Mai, Thailand

Get To Know The Northern Thai Hill Tribes - Chiang Mai, Thailand

When I was a child I used to watch documentaries about people all over the world with my father, I never thought it would be possible to meet any of those people, it never happened to anyone I knew. We were just watching, getting amazed, and getting on with our lives.
Not even for a second, I could imagine being where I am today, experiencing first-hand cultures that were just extraordinary dreams.
I am grateful to say this is not the first time I am inside one of the documentaries we watched, and I pray it won’t be the last.
